After all, it's our goal to partner with patients for lasting results.

Candidates for Porcelain Veneers Who Should Undergo Treatment

Patients must meet certain criteria to get veneers. We can assess your candidacy during a consultation at our Glastonbury dental practice.

Aesthetically Flawed Teeth

Porcelain veneers are designed for people with cosmetic dental concerns. Patients suffering from serious fractures and dental health issues instead require restorative treatment.

Sufficient Enamel in Place

Since enamel needs to be removed for the dental veneer, patients need to have healthy teeth with enough enamel in place. This ensures the treatment succeeds without leaving your teeth overly sensitive or vulnerable to damage.

Realistic Expectations About Treatment

As with all dental treatments, it's important for patients to have realistic expectations about the risks and benefits of the procedure, proper aftercare, and the cost of dental veneers.

I have been going here for years. They are very caring and competent. Any procedures that I have had done here have been next to pain free. They have been known to stop and make sure that everything was okay when working on me. I was always fine and I have even experienced them calling me later to check on me. I wholeheartedly recommend this office.

The Porcelain Veneers Procedure A Timeline for Treatment

The porcelain veneers treatment process takes about two weeks to complete. Here is a step-by-step guide through the procedure so you know what to expect.
Porcelain veneers can do the work of multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures.
Porcelain veneers can do the work of multiple cosmetic dentistry procedures.

Assessing Candidacy

During your initial visit to our Glastonbury dental practice, we'll perform a full exam, take X-rays, and discuss your cosmetic goals. If dental veneers aren't for you, we can suggest alternatives.

Treatment Planning

Next, our team will discuss the details of how the veneers should look, personalizing them to the patient's anatomy and cosmetic preferences.

Prepping the Teeth

When prepping a tooth, a small amount of enamel is shaved from the front. Great care is taken to maintain as much healthy enamel as possible for long-term dental wellness.

Taking Impressions

Impressions are taken of each prepped tooth. These impressions are sent to an off-site lab where the dental veneers are custom-crafted for fit and natural appearance.

Temporary Veneers

Until the final dental veneers are completed, patients will wear temporary veneers that will protect the teeth and be shaped and contoured like the permanent ones, so the patient can "try them on." If after a few days of wearing the temporaries the patient wants to make any changes, those changes can be incorporated into the permanent veneers for the best possible outcome. 

Crafting the Veneers

Skilled and trusted lab technicians use the finest materials and latest technology available to create dental veneers that blend with natural tooth structure.

Placing the Permanent Veneers

When patients return to the practice, the temporary dental veneers are removed. The permanent veneers are checked for fit, and with your approval, we will secure the veneers in place. 

Protecting against Teeth Grinding

We take special care to ensure your results will last as long as possible. If a patient has a grinding habit, a special bite guard will be custom-made based on their unique needs.

Book an Appointment with Dr. Bidra

We want to provide you with as much information as possible about veneers and other treatments so you can make an informed decision. During your private consultation with Dr. Bidra, he can take note of your goals and assess your oral health to determine if veneers or another cosmetic dentistry solution is the best way to upgrade your smile.

The Cost of Dental Veneers Budgeting for a Beautiful Smile

Patients have many questions about the price of veneers. The team at our Glastonbury dental center takes time to discuss the cost of treatment, payment methods, financing options, and affordable alternatives.

Average Cost of Veneers

The cost of porcelain veneers depends on the complexity of the case such as bite, existing old fillings, crowded teeth etc. We can provide a cost estimate and breakdown during your consultation and examination visit to our office.

Financing Options

We offer CareCredit® and other payment plans to split the total cost of treatment into more manageable monthly installments. This makes dental veneers possible for many patients.

Discussing Patient Concerns

We want you to be confident about getting dental veneers. We will discuss the cost of treatment and potential alternatives during your consultation so you can have a beautiful smile without serious financial strain.

Want a Complete Smile Makeover? Combining Veneers With Other Treatments 

Some patients use veneers in combination with other treatments to achieve the dazzling smile they’ve always wanted. In addition to restorative work, we also offer these cosmetic procedures in tandem with veneers: 

Teeth Whitening

If your teeth have become stained over time, porcelain veneers may stand out from other teeth. Teeth whitening can remove these issues to provide a beautiful complement to your porcelain veneers.

Brighten My Smile

Gum Lift

If you have excess gum tissue that makes your teeth look worn or uneven, we can gently remove small amounts of this tissue to provide an attractive frame for your teeth. This will set the stage for veneers to give your smile symmetry and consistency.
